Cornbread Quiche Muffins

Just when you think you don’t like mimosas you go to a bridal shower and drink three.  Or four.  I kind of loss track when the waitress never let my glass get remotely close to half empty.  It was wonderful.  I got to pretend like I hadn’t drank anything.  Fabulous.

I love bridal showers, wedding, etc…I wish I could do wedding related things every weekend.  I don’t even care that it’s not for my wedding…well, maybe I care a little.

Anyways, back to the mimosas.  Three glasses in I remembered that I’d been given the duty of writing down all the gifts the bride-to-be was receiving.  So I figured it’d be a good time to switch to water for a little bit…well for that reason and because it was only 11 am.  So as I sipped my water as I proceeded to eat the smoked salmon garnish off the top of as many cream cheese bagel toast things as I could.*  Unfortunately, the waitress didn’t magically replace the smoked salmon…and then I was left with 5 smoked salmon-less cream cheese bagel toasts.  It was embarrassing.  So I switched back to the mimosas…no one could tell how many of those i’d drunk drank.

The day after all the mimosas drinking and smoked salmon eating, a morning run was necessary.  While running around my neighborhood trail, I ran into my grandma.  Quite literally.  I was running around a corner and she was out walking her dog and BAM!  So I stopped running and we walked the rest of the way back to our houses (both of my grandmas live on my street…there’s a joke on my cul-de-sac that my dad is trying to buy the entire street.  Hopefully not.  Because we have great neighbors.  When I have my own family I want to find a street just like ours…growing up with 15 kids your age all within yelling distance was the best.)

So anyways, as we were about to go our separate ways my grandma said, “You know what I’ve really been craving?”

Me: “Halloween candy?”

Grandma: “No, cornbread!”

Grandma’s are the best.  And I wouldn’t have mine be any other way.  She’s really good at getting you to do little things for her.  Little things that are so simple and never take more than an hour.  But it’s a well known fact that you can’t go over to grandmas without being given a task.  Ever.  She’s sneaky.  And just when you think you’re about to leave her house without having taken the dog for a walk, searched for dishes in her attic, or rearranging her furniture…there it comes.  That little request.

And I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I like people who are confident in who they are and don’t apologize for it.  And one day I’m sure I’ll be exactly like my grandma…and I can’t wait.  Plus, living by yourself is tough.  And I understand that to some extent.

So I made her cornbread.  Took it across the street to her.  And then headed back to school.  And then it happened…

I started craving cornbread.  Bad.  Hence the delicious cornbread quiche muffins.

*worst bridesmaid ever? quite possibly.

Cornbread Quiche Muffins

makes 12 muffins (serves 4)

Inspired by Healthy Tipping Point

1 1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill gluten free cornbread mix (~1/2 package)

4 eggs

3/4 cup almond milk

1/8 cup + 1 Tbsp olive oil

1/3 cup greek yogurt, plain

1/3 cup peas, frozen

1/2 cup corn, frozen

2/3 cup red cabbage, roughly chopped


Preheat oven to 350F.  To a large bowl, add the cornbread mix, 1 egg, almond milk, and olive oil.  Using an electric mixer or you forearm muscles, mix the cornbread until a smooth batter is formed.  Set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix together the 3 eggs and greek yogurt until smooth.  Stir in the green peas, corn, red cabbage, and some salt/pepper.  Spray your muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray.  Place a spoonful of cornbread batter into each muffin tin.  Each muffin tin should be a little less than half full with batter (not very full at all.)  On top of the cornbread batter, spoon the egg-veggie mixture until the muffin tins are just under full.  Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until egg is set.  Remove from muffin tins and allow to cool slightly before serving.

    These look incredible! I love all the colors:) And Bob’s Red Mill is the best!

      Thanks:)) I completely agree with you on loving Bob’s Red Mill except I wish their flours came in resealable containers or something. I have about 7 different little bags of flours in my pantry that are all taped shut! I need to invest in some flour jars or food clips or something!

        Rubber bands. They come on some veggies even, ans do a fine job of keeping bags closed.

          Simple and brilliant…I’ll have to start saving my rubber bands:)

    yummm! Those look awesome! This would go so well with some chili!

    • Kylie — November 7, 2012 @ 8:59 am (#)

      Agreed! As soon as it gets even a little cold I’m making some chili!!

    These looks yummy! I was so attracted to the purple stuff in the quiche muffins and was curious to know what they were! Red cabbage – genius!

      Haha ‘genius’…not so sure about that:) But they’re pretty tasty!

    That’s so cute that your grandmas live on your street. I’ve made mini quiches before but never corn bread ones – they sound great!

      Yeah they’re about as different from one another as they can possibly be:) it makes for some interesting times:)

    Your grandmother sounds a lot like my mother, and it sounds like you grew up in a great neighborhood. How nice to have your family so close. By the way, the muffins look great.

      I love being so close, I hope I never have to move away:)
